So, I made my friend a pair of fingerless gloves.  Just finished recently, though I started them in January.  Yes, it's getting a bit too warm, but I was kind of in a slump this winter and wasn't knitting much; so, better late than never, right?  At least she'll be able to use them come the fall.

Here she is wearing them:


Yay!  She seems to like them.  And fingerless gloves might just be my favorite things to knit (socks would be the only real rival). Admittedly, being lazy, I prefer making fingerless *mittens*, but she wanted gloves, and I should be less lazy, so yeah.  Tongue

Now comes the creepy part.  A few weeks ago, I went to Pittsburgh to visit a different friend.  Just today I decided I should wash the clothes that I took with me.  As I went through the backpack where these clothes were, I found...this:


Umm...whoa.  The only explanation I can think of is that I must have started knitting the second glove, lost track of the first one without realizing I'd lost track of it, and then started the "second" one (and finished the pair, which I gave to my friend!) without it ever occurring to me that I'd made three.

I'm only 21 - I'm not supposed to be this absent-minded yet, am I?!

LOL! Hey well finish it and make the OTHER second and y'all will have a "best friend's" set. Grin

It's a toothpaste on the wrong side of the toothbrush kind of day.

Hey, now there's an idea!  I wonder if I have enough yarn...might not...   Sad  Maybe I'll try and see, though.

or finish this one, so that if she ever loses one, you'll have a replacement!!   heheh!

I did think of that, but she never loses ANYTHING (probably why she was so very amused at my having been flaky enough to accidentally make three gloves!)... on the other hand, I haven't been knitting gloves long enoug to know whether my construction methods hold up for very long, so maybe a third one would be good in case one of the others falls apart.  Wink
